WHY IS PLANNING REQUIRED?
Planning activities for employees helps in effective utilization of their time and therefore improvement of productivity for the organization.
Diferent domains mandate different types of activity and workflow planning. For example, Route Planning will be applicable to a logistics company where as Day Planning will be applicable to a Service Ticket Management Company.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF PLANNING
Organized Plan: In specific domains like in retail, a route plan typically works better cos the customers/clients in a route are defined. EFFORT+ can be used to effectively plan repeatable routes across a week.
Un-Organized Plan: In domains like Pharma, Hotel and other similar genres, executives plan their days or tour plans. Managers can also plan their day, week or month to effectively utilize their times. Leaves would be considered in making plans so that employees who are unavailable are not assigned plans.
In both cases, the plans can contain both activities and workflows that are meant to be performed across a defined duration.
